I think that's the best thing. No point drawing so much unwanted attention to yourself.

Ecks i was informed of two or three cars of the black edition making their way here. I know the CLK production has stopped but you know these companies, they just might bring one of each to check if the market will consume them. Keep your fingers crossed that the CLK does make it here. It just could be what some market has not picked up is coming here. Tried asking for the models being brought but they are tight lipped about it.

Sweet !!! Looks sinful in black.

I know it's a lil too early to ask this, but any upgrades planned in the future for the R8?

Did the porsche have any performance package(s) added on?

Congrats to your bro. I wish him many miles of driving pleasure.

Nice car!! Love the sleek purposeful interior - especially that shifter!
So is it the new V10 R8?

Thanks brother. No the Porsche does not have any performance upgrades on it and won't have any in the future as we would most probably sell it. Any upgrades on the R8 will be as per my brother's wish . So if he decides on anything , I will let every one here know.

EDIT - Mohit , it is the V8 R8. He liked the throaty V8 than the barking V10.

Haha. Nicely put ecks.

It's nice to see the conventional gear shift rather than the paddle's in a modern supercar.

Hey Karan, Congratulations on the new addition to the garage. So once you get this one which car will cover up for the coming soon section in your signature ?

As far I know from the thread you started on the LP, you wanted to get a F430. Any updates on that. I also wanted to request if possible, can you keep all the cars in your signature together any day and have a photo shoot. It'll a feast for the eyes to see all the beauties together.

Congrats once again, drive safe.

Since we are getting this from a private importer , he clicked the pictures and sent them to us.

1 - None , for the time being . Pretty satisfied with the collection , so far.

2 - No F430 on the cards yet.

3 - Lookout for a photo shoot soon.

hey congrats dude! The R8 looks chick in black although i'd prefer red! I was just wondering how did you get to meet your R8 if you have booked it with an Audi dealership in India? From where does Audi import the R8 to India?
